Re: Additional bills scheduled for a vote on Monday
The last scheduled voting sessions before the July 1 budget deadline, for both the State Senate and General Assembly, are scheduled for Monday, June 28.
Our other letters today highlight a number of bills that saw recent action in either the Senate or Assembly Budget committees, and may see action on the floor of their respective Houses on Monday. Below we highlight additional bills scheduled for votes on Monday and the League’s position.
In the State Senate, the League supports the following:
S-196, Revises filing requirements for minor subdivisions.
S-341, Expands range of local units eligible to join an insurance fund established by a municipality or county under certain circumstances.
S-1141, Permits board of fire commissioners to amend fire district budget after adoption to insert special items of revenue.
In the State Senate, the League opposes:
S-1248, Requires local unit or authority to provide director of the Division of Local Government Services with report concerning law suits to which it is a party before budget is approved.
S-2006, Prohibits municipal zoning ordinances from regulating solar panels under certain circumstances; limits fees for certain renewable energy installations.
We ask that you contact your State Senators on these bills.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
